Welcome[edit]

Heya Dizzy, welcome to the NeoDex. --Macbeth 10:42, 24 Jan 2007 (CST)

Upload Images[edit]

Thanks for adding some images to the articles. In future, though, could you upload them and use wikicode to enter them in an article? Ta'. --Macbeth 14:05, 28 Jan 2007 (CST)

Sysop powers gained[edit]

For your hard work and dedication to the NeoDex, I feel you have earned the right to be an administrator. continue to keep up the good work. *shakes hand* :) --Jacob 19:09, 24 Feb 2007 (CST)

Congratulations from me as well :) --Demon 14:40, 25 Feb 2007 (CST)

Thank you very much, I'm honoured :D --Dizzy 20:07, 7 Aug 2007 (UTC)

The "Games" category[edit]

just to note the games category shouldn't be placed on individual games such as Whack-A-Kass, but with sub categories such as action games and puzzle games. This avoids cluttering the "games" category, and placing game articles such as Whack-A-Kass is a more proper category. and to clarify why some of the games articles are still labelled with the "games" category, well, i uh...*scratches head* didn't get around to it. :S --Jacob 12:58, 3 Apr 2007 (CDT)

Ah okay, my mistake. I'll remember that next time, thanks for telling me :) --User:Dizzy 13:06, 3 April 2007 (EST)

Thumbs up to colours effort[edit]

I just wanted to say thanks for your efforts to complete the colours lists for all Neopets. It's a tedious task, now all the more tedious now that it looks like the google search feature is gone (going to start discussion on that in another place soon). Your work is very much appreciated. ;) *thumbs up* --Jacob 19:40, 7 Aug 2007 (UTC)

Thank you! It's nice to be acknowledged :) Tedious it may be, but I'm happy to do it for the NeoDex (plus it's a good boredom deterent). --Dizzy 20:06, 7 Aug 2007 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for the welcome, and tip. And sorry for the mistake! = ) -- This comment was left unsigned by Jeran (talk | contribs)

Hey Dizzy - Thanks for cleaning up the trash! ~ Blue (talk) 18:00, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

I've had lots of practice from spam-attacks of old, haha! --Dizzy 18:06, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Kalahnto[edit]

Oops, sorry I was busy making the article wikified as you were deleting it. Feel free to delete it and move the information, if necessary elsewhere =) -Fugwoogle hop 20:54, 24 Nov 2007 (UTC)

I'll just redirect it to Deserted Tomb instead :) But, for my own curiosity, where did you find out that it also refers to the stone circle on the Deserted Tomb? --Dizzy 20:56, 24 Nov 2007 (UTC)
It's in the Neopedia article for Geraptiku. I did think it was quite interesting. -Fugwoogle hop 21:00, 24 Nov 2007 (UTC)
Awesome, I should really read the Neopedia more often. One more thing, I changed my mind about redirecting/deleting the article. There's a lot more information about the word than I realized. Making a discussion page will probably make more sense I think --Dizzy 21:06, 24 Nov 2007 (UTC)
Fair dos =) I need to get around to making a The Search for Princess Lunara page, as the answers to questions on there are quite random. -Fugwoogle hop 21:08, 24 Nov 2007 (UTC)

We also hold optional weekly meetings online if you wish to attend and find help for any PPT-related projects that you may be on.

All PPT staff now has access, and we need some NeoDex representation there, so head to http://www.pinkpt.com/forum/ - register an account and email me kym@kymhuynh.com your username there so I can grant you access. Hope to see you there. --Kym 06:54, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

I need a replacement...or something[edit]

I'm finally making it officially and stating that I won't be here for awhile, and will need someone to take the lead...or something. Go to the talk page of the community portal to see what I'm talking about. --Jacob 08:21, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

We'd all really love to hear from you some opinion on it.--Demon 15:38, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Hello, Dizzy.[edit]

Is there a way to change my username other than creating a new account? I want my username changed to Destiny or Destiny Charlotte because my current username is a bit weird.

Yes, I did contact Macbeth, but his last contribution was 2 months ago :P A Neezles A 04:57, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Sorry to bother you again, but I have another question: I just met someone underage, he's under 13. Is your site abided by COPPA? -- This comment was left unsigned by A Neezles A (talk | contribs)
I'll be answering some of the questions on behalf of Dizzy.
First, it'll not be possible to do it from our end, since the wikipedia do not have this feature build in.
Second, Macbeth had retired from Neodex, though I have no idea where he went... --SwordFire ( talk | contrib ) 16:56, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

User:Wheeler[edit]

Shouldn't you block him indefinitely? It helps prevent him from coming back later, and then you would have to do a lot more reverts and deletes. Destiny Charlotte 02:05, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I didn't realize that the same user came on earlier and did the same thing. I'd better go do it then even though it's likely he/it will be back with another account *sigh* --Dizzy 02:09, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
You must be really bored having to delete over 50 pages, right? ;) Destiny Charlotte 02:43, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
Yup, it was a real pain in the neck lol. Luckily I have a method for tabbing through the articles and deleting them with minimal mouse use. --Dizzy 02:51, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
Um, Dizzy, the vandalism attack came back on User:Tewapack and User:Willy on Wheels. Willy on Wheels? Wikipedia vandaliser-- I should have known! Destiny Charlotte 15:13, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
Thank you so much Dizzeh :) Destiny Charlotte 15:50, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
Dizzy, can you please change my user page and talk page to the way it was? Please? Destiny Charlotte 17:40, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
I reverted the vandalism on your user page :) --Dizzy 17:47, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
Wow, that was an awful lot of vandalism you had to revert...but finally everything's back to normal. Pinkgirl34 18:52, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
Yes, and I hope I never have to do it again lol. Although I have a feeling this vandal will not stop soon =/ --Dizzy 18:57, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
He's back: User:B Neezles B Destiny Charlotte 21:54, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
This vandalism really is frustrating, isn't it? Destiny Charlotte 00:29, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
You sure got that right :P. If you are able to, please delete any vandal articles he creates so I don't have to spend all day here lol. --Dizzy 00:32, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, but I can't delete pages. I'm no admin. Btw, I hate those double redirects :K Destiny Charlotte 00:36, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I wasn't sure if non-admin could delete articles or not. If only I could give you powers to delete then we could tackle this problem 2 against 1. --Dizzy 00:41, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Yep, and you're no bureaucrat. You could contact SwordFire and Emeraldosprey though, they are both active admins :D And I could help with the moving, but I really hate double redirects :K Destiny Charlotte 00:49, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
I can also keep an eye on this user and revert any pagemove vandalism on sight but I'll be fairly busy after next week because of schoolwork. Pinkgirl34 01:37, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
That's great, because we'll need as many users as we can to be on the lookout and stop this nuisance. Destiny Charlotte 01:47, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Huh? Why is my talk page SwordFire's/yours? Destiny Charlotte 02:29, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Looks like Dizzy probably made a mistake in reverting the vandalism. Looks like this Wheeler guy is pretty tricky...

I think A Neezles A's current talk page is actually SwordFire's talk page, but I'm not sure where did the original User talk:A Neezles A went. Pinkgirl34 02:44, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

I have no idea what happened when I was reverting but SwordFire's talk page ended up on hers. It sure didn't help that I was sick :P I hope everything else is back to normal. --Dizzy 02:53, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm going to revert all that vandalism tomorrow if it happens so you wouldn't have to destroy your computer if you accidentally puke on it :P Destiny Charlotte 02:59, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Psst, those messages are still SwordFire's. I guess we just have to find out where the real me's talk page is. Destiny Charlotte 03:52, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Which parts of your talk page belong to SwordFire? I'm trying to restore his talk page that I somehow messed up while dealing with the spammer. --Dizzy 03:59, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
All of it. But I fixed that. Destiny Charlotte 04:00, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Really? Oh I sure goofed this time, I'm very sorry about all this confusion. This spammer sure has great timing...right when I have a cold and am not thinking straight :( --Dizzy 04:07, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Wait a minute, I think I found the missing text for both talk pages. Please, please, please let these be correct: Neezles, SwordFire --Dizzy 04:21, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
YES! That's it! Thank you Dizzy!!! Destiny Charlotte 04:23, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
You forgot deleting this page: A Neopet A Destiny Charlotte 17:00, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Wheeler seems pretty quiet today...there's no vandalism so far. Pinkgirl34 19:05, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Uh oh...[edit]

Wheeler's back. User:C Neezles C Destiny Charlotte 00:42, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Hey, I just wanted to inform you that Gelert was redirected to Jpgordon's user page so now it's broken and basically you deleted the whole Gelert page. Destiny Charlotte 02:41, 6 September 2009 (UTC)
Do you recall if the Gelert article had a talk page?
Actually, nevermind. I found the talk page and it was previously only used for spam. I'll delete this one too. --Dizzy 02:49, 6 September 2009 (UTC)
Uh oh, he's back: User:E Neezles E User:Vandal 17 Destiny Charlotte 00:57, 7 September 2009 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

Do you know anything about Neo being down? I'm afraid it will be shut down-- forever (!)-- and I'll never be able to play NeoQuest II again (!!)-- or chat with my friends (!!!) Destiny Charlotte 01:23, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Nope, I'm just as clueless as you are but I don't think it's so serious that the site will shut down without warning. Don't panic just yet, I'm sure it'll be back soon :) --Dizzy 01:30, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
Oh great, because there's a pack rat guide I just can't get rid of on my account. Destiny Charlotte 01:33, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Mass Reverts[edit]

I've noticed that when you're reverting User:Hagrid835's vandalism, you tend to revert and delete dozens of pages at the same, and then for 5 minutes or so nothing happens, and then the pages get reverted/deleted again. I'm just wondering, is there a special way of performing this function? Thanks. --Pinkgirl 01:56, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

No I just use the tab key and the tabs on my internet browser. Pressing ctrl + tab helps me get through multiple reverts. Necessity is the mother of desperate methods to deal with vandalism xD --Dizzy 02:57, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

Would you possibly know how to change my user name? I'm really sick of the constant vandalism on my name. I mean practically, every time I edit something. The next day or two, a vandal vandals my page. --Ash 06:59, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

I wasn't sure so I checked the Help section and it seems that only bureaucrats can change your username, that way your contributions are taken along for the move. Try leaving a message for Yukio or Macbeth. Jacob might be able to help though I don't know if his bureaucratic power was restored or not. Or if you prefer, start a new account and your current one will be protected to avoid any more vandal attacks. --Dizzy 14:24, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
For the record, a. Jacob's a bureaucrat again; b. I don't think bureaucrats can change people's usernames. Kym has server access so might be able to update the users table, though. --Macbeth 15:02, 14 November 2010 (CST)

Oh God[edit]

Why does this vandal hate me? And can I have a name change so he won't recognize me? Raiku 04:53, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

You'll either have to create a new account or ask a bureaucrat to change it for you. See my reply to Ashpoke above. Believe me, I'd love to see him leave for good as well. --Dizzy 20:49, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

This is Raiku's vandal proof account, fyi. Sirrus 00:29, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Not nice[edit]

I would appreciate it if you would quit deleting my colour articles I create, It takes me over 30 minutes to create an article, so please stop that, that is not nice and is not tolerated here, If you will do so, do it somewhere else, please. -- This comment was left unsigned by Lilshawster2 (talk | contribs)

Individual articles for the Chia colours are not notable enough to warrant an entire page. That is the reason they keep getting deleted so please do not continue to re-create them or it will be considered spam. --Dizzy 21:11, 12 October 2010 (UTC)


Hey there guys =).
Dizzy deleted those articles because those colours aren't significant enough to need a whole article to themselves: the chia pop colours are specific to the magical chia pops, and so we think the information is best there. Maybe you could improve the Chia Pop article instead? It's the same with rejected colours, there's not much to say about them ;-). Information about them is best being put on the colour article instead.
Please don't take this personally, I'm sure Dizzy wasn't trying to be unpleasant. I hope this doesn't deter you from working on other pages :-).
Hope you're both well, --Macbeth 21:20, 12 October 2010 (UTC)


No, I was not deleting them to be mean but rather for the reasons Macbeth mentioned above. There are plenty of articles already established that could use your attention. :) --Dizzy 21:53, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Greco-ruskies[edit]

"the rest is all Greek to me"

It looked like Russian, to me ;-P. --Macbeth 19:58, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

And you would be 100% correct. My bad. xD --Dizzy 20:31, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Puppies[edit]

"saves a puppy from Macbeth's rage" [1]

Lol. ^.^ --Macbeth 15:02, 14 November 2010 (CST)

Hehe, I sincerely hope that was the last of the plainlinks. --Dizzy 15:17, 14 November 2010 (CST)

Recent vandalism[edit]

Thanks for your work reverting the recent spate of vandalism. I've e-mailed kym asking if he can disable account registrations for a while, which should throw them off for a bit. If this keeps up in the long term, then we'll look into captchas and so on.

Just wanted to let you know that something was being done =). --Macbeth 10:17, 28 January 2011 (CST)

Excellent! Show those bots who's boss around here. xD --Dizzy 11:30, 28 January 2011 (CST)
Just a heads up - account creation has now been disabled. Sysops can still create new accounts at Special:Userlogin should it ever come up. =) --Macbeth 10:32, 31 January 2011 (CST)
Yay! =D --Dizzy 15:49, 31 January 2011 (CST)

I arrived moments ago. ((O'_'O) lilshawster2 17:33, 23 March 2011 (CDT))

Featured article[edit]

I was wondering if you or Emeraldosprey had any ideas for August's Featured Article? Any articles you particularly want to shine? =) --Macbeth 11:24, 26 July 2011 (CDT)

Avatar[edit]

That's when. Good catch! --Macbeth 10:46, 20 October 2012 (CDT)

Thanks! I can't believe it went unnoticed for this long. Ha, who knew that spammers were actually capable of being subtle. ;P --Dizzy 13:43, 20 October 2012 (CDT)

Old Petpages[edit]

This is what I founded. Zafara Title Zafara Foot Zafara Ear Zafara Tail Fins of Zafara Nose of Zafara and Oldest Zafara smacking a fly

-- User:98.177.163.193

I maded Lamameeah by a mistake so delete it.

Thanks a lot for those images - they bring back memories of my early Neo-life, haha. (Dizzy 02:22, 31 October 2013 (UTC))

And I founded more of those. Oldest Zafara Title, Buzz swarming a hive, Hive with the word Buzz, This is the Badeek photo and choose Blue, Green, Red or Yellow and Pick Badeek or Polypup, Kiko SPLASH, Another Zafara Title, Gelert Title (Newer Version, And this is the old Gelert Title but still some more left, A Baby Aisha! (Not the same), Koi Title1, Koi Title2, An old korbat logo and The brother is a Grarrl not a Aisha. All of the old petpages I could find and I forgot about this Old Acara Title.

And I founded the Old Grundo title. I did not know there is a Grundo in here. -- User:98.177.163.193

Wow, that's a lot of old pictures! If you find anymore old petpage images, could you please post them on the Neopet talk page instead since that's where Petpage redirects to. I've already moved these ones over there. -- Dizzy 16:38, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

More old images[edit]

I founded the Old Elephante and the Old Lupe and I also founded 2th Flotsam and 2th Jetsam. There is the secound Peophin too. -- User:98.177.163.193

Yes, thanks again. But if you could please put any images you find of old Neopets on the Neopet talk page (or whichever article's talk page the image relates to) instead of here; and don't forget to sign your comments! :) -- Dizzy 01:46, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Could I put the cheats in Talk:Games Room?[edit]

I want to get all of the cheat list from The Daily Neopets and Jellyneo and this magicjugglingballs code from Jolly Jugglers. 98.177.163.193 17:14, 2 November 2013 (UTC)User:98.177.163.193

Perhaps cheat codes would better belong in the article for the game they work in? E.g. Sutek's Tomb mentions the plzsutekcanihavemoretime cheat. --Macbeth 18:52, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Sorry[edit]

You forgot about the April Neopets Contest the one that where did that Tigren, Frogstomp and the Shoyru got created by the users in Neopets. 98.177.163.193 00:02, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Can I put fan sites[edit]

I wanted fan sites for my old neopets. I returned and it's not online! I was using my Zafaras in this poll.

Can I give you a fight?

Columns template[edit]

HELLO!

I've just made a template that I hope will make everyone's life a bit easier. It will take one big list and automatically turn it into a table with three level columns. Hopefully this will make it easier to maintain the colours articles and pages. Check it out at Template:Columns. The manual's on the talk page, but it's pretty straight forwards (you can see it working at Eventide). I'm not planning to go around and update all the colour pages with it straight away, but I'll be using this template from now on whenever I have to add a new colour to a Neopet or Neopet to a colour.

Hope you find this handy! --Macbeth (talk) 22:59, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
